Supported Housing

To be eligible for Supported Housing with Doorstep you must be aged between 16 and 25, have a local area connection to North East Lincolnshire and have housing related support needs. 

Doorstep offers accommodation and support to young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Living in our supported housing means that you will have a Support Worker who will meet with you regularly and tailor a plan to help you achieve your goals. 

The support we offer is designed to prevent any further homelessness and could cover the areas listed below. If you feel you do not have any support needs and have a good level of independence you might be more suited to our General Needs housing

Typical areas of support could be:

  • Claiming the right benefits
  • Managing your finances
  • Helping you in to training, work or college
  • Develop household skills
  • Understanding your tenancy agreement
  • Managing your emotional and physical wellbeing
  • Help to secure permanent accommodation

Cambridge Street

You must be between 16 and 25 years to be eligible for Cambridge Street.

Cambridge Street is a shared accommodation home that can house up to 9 young people at any one time for up to two years. Support Workers are based on site 24 hours a day and this includes a night worker to ensure you feel safe and secure in your own home. Your Support Worker will help to identify your future goals and create an individually tailored support plan.

The bedrooms are furnished and there are shared communal spaces. Once your independence skills are developed you can move on to one of our other property types such as shared housing, a flat, or for some young people the next step could be a family home. 

Cambridge Street also hosts the Crash Pad which is an emergency bed for young people who have nowhere to go that night. To access this bed a referral must be made by a professional agency such as the Homeless Team or Families First Access Point. Referrals are made directly to Cambridge Street who can be contacted on 01472 291826.

Shared Housing

You must be between 18 and 25 years to be eligible for our shared housing

Our shared housing comes fully furnished and each tenant has their own room key. All of your bills are included which covers water, gas/electricity, council tax and internet. If you are in receipt of benefits you will pay a small weekly top up to cover your rent. 

Built in to your tenancy is the agreement that you will work with a Support Worker who is there to guide and assist you as you develop your independence. The support can last for a maximum of 2 years or sooner if you are ready to move on. Many of our tenants move on in to a General Needs property when they no longer need the support.

In our shared houses and flats we do not allow smoking, pets or children. All of our houses are within central Grimsby, housing 2-3 people at any one time.

Our flats are for single people or couples and there is no bond or deposit required. In some circumstances we can offer a ground-floor flat to a one or two parent family until the baby is one year old. After that we would look to move you to a house. 

The cost of a flat is the weekly rent plus your bills on top. All of our flats are fully decorated and carpeted, and have a cooker, fridge/freezer and washing machine installed.
